Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Here's how I make hard boiled eggs that come out perfect every time.

Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Cover with cold water so that the water level is about an inch above the top of the eggs.

Turn the burner on high and let the water come to a rolling boil.

Cover the saucepan and immediately remove from heat. Set a timer for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, drain the hot water from the pan and cover the eggs with cold water. Do this several times to cool both the eggs and the pan.

I then cover the eggs with cold water and ice cubes. This is very important. Placing the eggs in ice water will stop the eggs from cooking (and reduce the chance of a dark green edge on the yolk). It will also make the eggs easier to peel.

That's it!

I often have a hard boiled egg for breakfast or a snack, or use them in salads. How do you use hard boiled eggs?
